1. Read to Me

During the month of May, bags with books and information about literacy are distributed to Crisis Nursery, Ronald McDonald House, and Egadz.

Writing from all grade levels, is submitted by teachers to the local Young Writers coordinator.  Selected pieces are then submitted to the provincial  coordinator for inclusion into the Young Saskatchewan Writer’s Publication which comes out in June. A celebration of young authors is held on an evening in June with possible writer’s workshop with known local author.

We are hosting a Book Club and reading No More Independent Reading Without Support by Debbie Miller. We are meeting 3 times a year to discuss and share our understandings.
